Is this a 5gallon batch?

6 gal..but you can use it for a 5 gal, it will just be a little stronger abv and darker.

Did you ever brew this? How did you like it?

Brew day on this went smooth. The big hop aroma coming from this smells euphoric. Ive already got everything to repeat the batch as soon as I get an open carboy. I also made 2 small adjustments to the original recipe but I couldnt edit the post. I used a grain bill of 18# 2Row, 2# C60, .5# Carapils, .5# White wheat. The other change was I added another oz of each Amarillo and Citra at flameout. Just added the dryhop addition 2 days ago. Heres some pics....

I just bottled 2 of the 6 gallons(kegging the other 4 for brewfest) and wow. This is by far the best beer I've made. The sample tasted great; instant grapefruit and mango with subtle pineapple tones coming through. Big hoppy aroma that smells of blood orange and tropical fruit. I will be brewing this again in 2 weeks. I've found my house IPA!!! I advise anyone to give this recipe a go, you will be happy you did!

Love the Citra + Amarillo combo, but this has too much crystal for me with quite the high mash temp.
What was your OG/FG?

KeyWestBrewing 07-24-2012 03:56 PM

1.094 and 1.014. I myself expected more maltiness from the mash temp but it's really quite balanced. You can always cut down the crystal to your preference as well.

See, I find beauty in "un-balance" with IPAs/IIPAs. Hate the term balance for those styles. It's kind of like saying I want "balanced" buffalo wings instead of spicy buffalo wings. Preference I guess.

Good job on the attenuation. I didn't see what yeast you used here though.
